See below for the different ways you are able to help us.


Please Volunteer


Volunteering is a rewarding and positive way to spend any spare time you may have and we’re always in need of people to help in a variety of ways.

In particular, we welcome those who can volunteer to help with packing aid into boxes in our warehouse facility.

Please contact us if you feel you could help us in this or any other way.

Drive and sponsor a van

We are always looking for self-funded volunteers to drive one of our vans to Ukraine.

You will be able to share the driving with another driver. The 3500 mile trip takes 11 days, which includes a few days spent at the Revival Centre and visiting local families.

We stop each night at a hotel, so drivers are given the chance to relax. If you would like to learn more about this exciting opportunity, please let us know and we will put you in contact with one of the many others who have completed the journey in previous years.

We receive financial and other support from a variety of businesses and companies.

Support has included vehicle supply (from the Rotary Club of North London) and assistance with travelling expenses to ensure timely delivery of aid to the Centre.

Advertising space is available on our vehicles, on our web-site and in our newsletter.

If your business would like to sponsor a vehicle and have your business brand promoted on the side of our vans, or indeed on this website, we can discuss with you the advertising opportunities we have available. Any help your business can give us to raise funds and awareness would be very much appreciated.

Perhaps you could hold a fund-raising event, organise a raffle or include us in your marketing literature?
